Our services are available to homeowners, as well as contractors, architects, engineers and suppliers of construction materials.

Real Estate Litigation Issues Can Be Complex

Disputes involving real estate tend to be complex, and we believe that the best way to resolve these disputes as expeditiously as possible is to ensure that all contractual obligations are evaluated at an early stage. At the same time, for our clients to obtain an effective resolution of their cases as speedily as possible and without extra expense, their claims should be professionally analyzed. To this end, we ensure that we collaborate with a variety of technical experts as well as with qualified mediators and arbitrators.

Tenacious Advocates Of Our Clients’ Interests

As a firm, we have a reputation for tenacity in pursuing our clients’ interests. This reputation is well-known among insurance industry representatives, judges, mediators and opposing counsel. Although we aim to reach a resolution without having to go to court, we are prepared to advance our clients’ cases in whatever trial or arbitration proceedings necessary to win.

We understand that a lot of real estate litigation depends on an up-to-date interpretation of various mechanisms and agreements because these change over time. We ensure that all members of our team keep up to date with case law and changes in the statutes that might affect our clients. We also keep our clients fully informed of all these changes.

Specific Cases Of Real Estate Litigation

You may be a general contractor or developer, and your dispute is with the specialist contractors or suppliers that have been hired to provide specific services or materials for construction. In this situation, we vigorously pursue all those contractual and indemnity obligations as well as any other rights that have been obtained as part of an insurance agreement and for which the specialist contractor supplier is liable to uphold.

If you are a specialist supplier or contractor and your dispute is with the property owner, whether this is a private homeowner or a commercial property owner, we will thoroughly investigate all those claims where responsibility has been deliberately diverted toward the client when the construction or supply materials defects have, in fact, been caused by another party.

You may also be a homeowner or a commercial property owner in a dispute with a general contractor over defective construction materials or practices. We will use the experience and knowledge of experts in the construction industry to fairly assess the defects and the cost of making the repair as well as other costs involved. These costs include the loss of business revenue, the possible need for extra storage facilities or even relocation while the defects are repaired.

We at Ramey Law, P.C., are proud of our commitment to our clients in the Los Angeles area, and we acknowledge that each of them is in a unique situation. Our team members always ensure that they understand the particular needs of our clients and work tirelessly on their behalf to resolve their real estate litigation concerns.
